Author Biographies

Michael S. Detamore, University of Kansas

Michael Detamore is currently an assistant professor of chemical and petroleum engineering at the University of Kansas. He received his 8. S. in chemical engineering from the University of Colorado in 2000 and his Ph.D. in bioengineering from Rice University in 2004. While in graduate school, he taught algebra, geometry, and fourth-grade math on weekends for a year, and was a co-instructor for a graduate-level course in continuum biomechanics. At KU, he has taught material and energy balances and tissue engineering. His research interests include tissue engineering, biomechanics, and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

Rachael H. Schmedlen, University of Michigan

Rachael Schmedlen received her B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan and her Ph.D. in bioengineering from Rice University. Her thesis involved the development of hydrogel scaffolds for vascular tissue engineering. Currently, she is an adjunct lecturer in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan, teaching introductory biomedical engineering, biomedical engineering senior design, and tissue engineering.
